Our New Fancy Dishes

Look what mom bought us at Petco yesterday!
Our other once were showing signs of rust around the bottom and mom didn't like that so she tossed them!
These are much higher and pretty easy to eat out of! Gosh, we barely even have to lean over!
Yes, we are eating in a fireplace pit! We have 2 fireplaces in our kitchen and we've never used either one of them since we've lived here and it's been over 25 years! My crate used to be right in this exact spot and it stayed here for years until mom finally decided that I really wasn't using it anymore and put it away! Our food and water bowls used to hang off the side of my crate but once it was gone, mom had to come up with an alternative plan!
She even got Mitch's brakefast bowl to work although it really doesn't slow him down much!
That boy eats way too fast and mom is always quick to remind me that when I was younger, I did too!
Thanks, mom! You made it much easier on an older girl like me!
We love our new fancy dishes!

So until next time.............

Love ya lots,

Maggie and Mitch

how cool - you have the same tall borls I do - even the same color. Mom had to get me one of those because the long fur on my chest was always getting in my food. It makes it so much easier to eat and drink from.....glad you back from vacation.

Benson and Lily said...

Cool bowls. My head would fit nice in there. Lily would fall in. What you guys eating in there?

Samantha said...

Those are pawesome (tall) bowls - that's for sure! Did you have a good trip home? Pretty cool to settle back into the old routine with a couple of sets of new contraptions to munch your dinner out of!
Hugs xo

hey those are the nicest bowls i have seen

Stardust said...

Very nice looking dishes out there, and if they make eating easier, WOW! Isn't mom the caring one? I can't tolerate rust on anything that contacts food too!

Duffy said...

Wow, what cool bowls. Bet they hold lots of food, too!

Lorenza said...

Hi, Maggie and Mitch!
Your new bowls are pawesome!
The pink piggies were waiting for their turn to eat??
Kisses and hugs

Koobuss said...

Wow!! Those are great! And so big!! (My dish is a lot smaller.) How can you tell them apart? I was expecting Maggie to have pink dish.

Love and Koobuss Kisses,


Hi M and M
Fancy fancy- no leaning over either and brakefast so no belly bloat? Does it churn ice cream too?


Southbay Girl said...

Hi M&M...what great new bowls you have! I have a high one too-it does make it easier on our necks! Mom saw some pink piggies in your fireplace-are those your toys? Do they squeak???



BRUTUS said...

Great bowls! I don't have a problem with height, as I am vertically challenged. Our biggest task is finding a bowl that is shallow & yet big enough for me to fit my big head in! Oh, what's with the piggies? Is your mom trying to play some subliminal trick on you or something??

Tweedles -- that's me... said...

Having a new bowl,
Nice color-
Nice height
Holds LOTS of food
what could be better?

happy said...

They are really fancy! I used to eat way too fast too hee...slowing down now, probably with age.

Sally said...

No wonder he eats so fast - did you notice there are two little pink pigs near your food bowls - thankfully you have the tall bowls now and those little pigs can't reach!

Nice bowls - they are perfect for ice cream

Lots of licks
Sally and Paddy

Teddy Bear said...

Those are great bowls. I agree that it's much easier to eat when the food bowl is raised a little. Do you every get into each others bowls?

Bae Bae said...

Your dish really look pawsome. :)

Mango said...

I have a raised bowl too. How can you possibly have your food and water so close and not get foodables in your water? You are neat eaters, huh?


Penny, Poppy & Patches said...

What cool bowls! We eat without bending over too much too. Our bowls sit in wrought iron stands and yes, the iron does rust, but the bowls don't. It must be really cool having 2 fireplaces in your kitchen. We no longer have ANY fireplaces. Our pawrents ripped ours out and replaced it with a ginormous window! It's okay though...the fire box was so shallow that we were afraid to actually have a fire in it!

Rocky Creek Scotties and Java said...

Cool new bowls - and you have your own personal water bowls too - we all share the same water bowl. We better discuss that with Mom and see if we can get our own.

Hi Maggie & Mitch!
Your new dishes are very cool!


Noah the Airedale said... good are those bowls. Our bowls are boring old alluminium.

Good evening m & m
It is a beautiful island.
I love spectacle of the ship of seeing the morning sun.
Of course, I also sympathize with the life of the island.

New tableware is clean.
It seems to be easy for being in a high place to eat and to eat meal for a moment.
I also put on a high place for a moment, and give ume tyan meal.
It is a wonderful discovery. :D

from loved ume tyan

Clive said...

Love the new bowls! Very cool!

lots of woofs

PS-was just wondering if your Mom would have a recipe for green tomatoe chutney? We have lots of green tomatoes and are looking to do something with them!! They won't go red now!! Our email is (if you have any suggestions - many thanks!!) We have gone on-line and googled a few recipes but would love to know one that was tried and tested!

ScrapsofMe said...

Is yer Momma diz'in you with those piggies? Love the bowlies, hope they are always filled with yummies for the tummies.

Hollie and Janie said...

I love your new bowls! They are awesome! I love the piggies in the firepit!

Brownie said...

Maggie and Mitch, I love your new bowls! They're fabulous!

Sue said...

Sky's special bumpy bowl has slowed him down when he eats so he won't bloat, but now Noah and Bailey each need one. They're starting to eat way too fast.

Martha Basset said...

What very nice new bowls you have! You know Bailey and me don't like to complain but we are using old Harry's dishes!!!
We think looking at your post it is time for us to have nice new dishes too!
We will ask our mum.

Fenway said...

I'm really impressed with your dinnerware! It looks like the Ritz at your house. And I think bringing up the bowl height so that you don't have to eat near the ground is VERY thoughtful. Give your mom some huge kisses for that!

I hope your bowls are brimming with cheesy goodness,

Jazzi said...

LOVE the new bowls and what a great idea to put them in the fireplace. You have a smart mom!!
Now, your new bowls make mine look so dingy, I will have to work on getting me a new set of bowls!!


Mollie Jo and Bobo said...

That is some fancy dining. Wonderful of your mom to utilize space so wisely!

Wags and Licks,

Johann The Dog said...

Oh those are cool!!!! I like them. I think it is easier to eat when the bowl is raised and doesn't slide around everywhere, BOL!!! Mum puts my dish in an old kiddie circle toy, BOL!!!

Congrats on your new bowls. I have raised bowls too with adjustable legs so as I grew taller Mommy raised them. Hootie is so short his is only a little off the ground.
Smooches from pooches,

erin said...

Cool new dishes. I think my little sister eats too fast too. I, on the other hand, prefer to play with and than savor my food. I don't get to do that much anymore though since if I wait too long, Teagan will steal my food! The nerve of her! At least Mitch has some manners, right?
